just another day at the office.

Snaps from a busy Saturday. I always love the seasonal shift at the flower shop. Fall brings dark bold flowers, lots of texture {think pods, mushrooms, wheat and grasses, and dried oak leaves} and a kind of laid-back, cozy design style.

Last weekend we worked on a garden-style wedding for a sweet couple with a natural organic aesthetic (he owns a great health food store just a few blocks from our shop). I incorporated fresh herbs into the boutonnieres — lavender, rosemary and sage — and we designed her bouquets to look like the girls gathered up handfuls of fresh flowers for the ceremony.


We also worked on centerpieces for a surprise birthday party. The client wanted something casual and elegant, so we grouped garden-style flowers into mason jars and tied them up with lots of raffia.

Welcome, Fall! I’m so very happy you’re here.

    I love your flower shop, and I love the rosemary and sage combined with the flowers. Will you move to Texas and do the flowers for my wedding? :)

    Breathtaking…don’t normally like purple flowers but these are so romantic and look amazing with the cream.

      Thanks, Jupe! I love purples when there are lots of shades involved — lavender to plum in one arrangement :)

      Thank you, Jeannee! It’s always fun to do things a little unexpected ;-) It was perfect for this couple, because he’s all about organic living!
